North Pond Park is a 5-acre park located directly south of the elementary school at the intersection of Highway 9 and Hamilton Creek Road. It's a unique mountain wetland and pond area that is home to nesting osprey and quality catch-and-release fishing. A small warming hut is perfect for a family picnic, a gathering of friends, or a quiet morning chat with coffee.
Non-motorized boating is permitted, as well as dipping your feet (or body) in the water for a quick splash. Be aware, though, the water is chilly! No lifeguards on duty; use at your own risk.
Other amenities include a picnic shelter overlooking the pond, restrooms, 2 docks, a short walking trail, gas firepit, charcoal grill, and parking. North Pond Park is the most northern trailhead for the Blue River Trail and an excellent starting point for a daytrip along the Blue River.
